I’m a ska girl at heart so I am super stoked that Reel Big Fish will be taking over The Cabooze on Monday, July 15th.
Reel Big Fish is an American ska punk band from Orange County, California, best known for the 1997 hit “Sell Out”. The band gained mainstream recognition in the mid-to-late 1990s, during the third wave of ska with the release of the gold certified album Turn the Radio Off. Soon after, the band lost mainstream recognition but gained an underground cult following. As of 2006, the band is no longer signed to a major record label, and has since been independent. After many line-up changes throughout the years, front man Aaron Barrett is the only remaining founding member in the band.
Reel Big Fish’s new album ‘Life Sucks… Let’s Dance!’ Is out now via Rock Ridge Music
Joining Reel Big Fish will be a personal favorite of mine- The Aquabats! Easily identified by their masks and matching costumes, The Aquabats are perhaps most recognized for their comedic persona in which they claim to be crime-fighting superheroes. This theme serves as subject for much of the band’s music and as part of their theatrical stage shows, which typically feature various stunts and fight scenes with costumed villains and monsters. Musically, The Aquabats have continuously evolved over the course of their career, starting as an eight-member ska band before reinventing themselves in the early 2000s as a new wave-influenced rock quintet. The band’s current musical style mixes rock and punk with elements of new wave, ska and synth-pop.
Opening the night will be Dog Party.
This is an all ages show so bring the family and don’t forget your dancing shoes!
